From Scott Bechtler-Levin:
The value of a our indivual "like" is directly related to the consistent level of quality of the content and inversely related to the volume.

For me (Beth Kanter), it's Focus - it's a no brainer. The secret of good curation is a pause - a pause to read the article, think whether or not it is worth sharing, if sharing - add your view.
Here's notes from Robin about Seth's post:
The ensuing noise tsunami will make it rapidly evident that it is not more content or information that we need, but humans -aided by intelligent tools- that can help others find and make sense of the information and resources out there.
"...either be better at pump and dump than anyone else, get your numbers into the millions, outmass those that choose to use mass and always dance at the edge of spam (in which the number of those you offend or turn off forever keep increasing)...
or Relentlessly focus.
Prune your message and your list and build a reputation that's worth owning and an audience that cares.
Only one of these strategies builds an asset of value."
